Are you ready to live at a level 10?
Just this past Spring Eden Prairie landed Farrell’s Extreme Bodyshaping (FXBS) located next to Jerry’s grocery at 9627 Anderson Lakes in Eden Prairie. I’ll tell you now that I am biased because I am a FIT Member. That’s right – even this 55-year-old lady can do a 10 Week Challenge – survive and stick with it. For me, that in itself is an accomplishment. I have the best intentions to get and stay fit but there always seems to be something in the way but this time it’s working for a variety of reasons. My biggest roadblocks are time and injury. I was super fit in my 20’s then along came the career and raising a family.
I’m making time for myself these days. I’m at class five days a week at 7 AM. They have class starting as early as 5 AM and as late as 6:30 PM. I know that the early risers frequently use the showers at Farrell’s and buzz right off to work still beating the traffic. Good thing I don’t have far to travel to my office in Edina.
As for the injury – I had a total knee replacement due to Water Skiing shenanigans about ten years ago and it has just never been the same – I know when the weather is changing by how much my leg hurts. The good news is that the Kick Boxing and Strength training I’ve had at Farrell’s has helped build me up in the right way.
The 10 Week Challenge starts out kind of easy but don’t let that fool you. Each day the class whether Kick Boxing or Strength Training addresses a part of your body such as arms, legs, abs -you know the drill. Why it works is that each class takes you to the next level without you really knowing it. Oh, you’ll break a good sweat but don’t you worry you can and will be just fine.
The first thing to do is sign up for the next 10 week session which starts October 10th. You will be provided with wraps and gloves and a student manual to review and record your progress. FXBS will assign each “10-Weeker” a Coach and provide Nutritional counseling, food plans, and Nutrition classes. There are regular outings that all Farrell’s members can participate in like 5K’s, Tough Mudder etc. And at the end of 10 weeks you get a party and two people will win $1,000 cash for the best improvement.
The best part about Farrell’s (after getting good results) is the people there. Lance and Tracy Howard and son Jonathan have partnered up to open this location. They are so kind and inviting which permeates throughout the staff. I’ve made friends I’d never have even met and I am impressed by the wide variety of people (all shapes and sizes and colors just like me) that join me on my quest. Hope to see you soon!
